Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2011/2012: Chanel Runway

Uncle Karl Lagerfeld in da house!

Which can only mean one thing: it’s time for a look at the Chanel Fall/Winter 2011/12 runway, from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. And we know you just want to look at the pretty (or perhaps not-so-pretty?) pictures rather than listen to us ramble on, so we’ll say just one thing: boxy suits will be big this winter…

    I’m not sure if the eye thing is a lace strip or some kind of henna-type markings – but I actually like it.

    As for the outfits? Not my thing. Most look like an uglified rehash of styles I actually like – styles whose appeal for me has always been in the fact that they flatter female curves. Maybe it’s the fact that these models have no female curves, but a lot of these outfits seem very blocky and awkward.

    I’d wear the stodgiest looking of these outfits before going near a colour-blocked pussy-bow tie jumpsuit.
